Sixt Platinum with Elite/Elite+ / other companies doing the same?

Hello

I only found out today that Miles&Smiles Elite gives you instant Sixt Platinum status.
Sixt rent a car & Turkish Airlines
Are there any other rental car companies or hotels offering status to Miles&Smiles Elite or Elite+ members?

Thanks

Thanks for this. I used the link provided, added a pic of my E+ card, and got my Sixt account upgraded to Diamond. ^

I have never heard of this. Is this real because, looking at this you are providing them with everything that is needed for identity and credit card fraud.

When I logged in via that link, the site correctly retrieved my existing Sixt account with a lower status and linked to another FFP card.

It gave me an option to upgrade that existing account with my TK E+ information.

The higher status now shows up when I log in via Sixt.com . So seems pretty legit to me.

I just found the CC information request as a requirement a bit much.

The possibility of receiving an upgrade is only valid for up to 12 months from the issue date of the card. This advantage remains valid when you rent more than 10 times per 12 months with Sixt.

Looks like the upgrade benefit might disappear after a year, unless you fulfil the "normal" requirements for Diamond.
